Driving Hours Regulations

Designed to limit the number of hours a worker can drive and the minimum rest time required between spells behind the wheel, the Drivers' Hours Regulations is split into three major categories:

    1) Daily and fortnightly driving limits
    2) Required rest breaks and the amount of rest required on a daily and weekly basis
    3) Emergencies and exemptions
According to the directive, drivers are limited to a maximum of nine hours driving a day followed by at least 11 hours rest. Additionally, drivers may only drive 4.5 hours continuously before having a 45 minute break. Break can be divided into two periods, the first at least 15 minutes long, the second at least 30 minutes long. At the end of the week, a regular or a reduced weekly rest must be taken. And as if that wasn't difficult enough to manage, each of these limits can be changed in certain situations - for example, during the �daily driving period� you can normally drive for 9 hours. Twice in the fixed week (00:00 Monday to 24:00 Sunday) the daily driving period may be extended to 10 hours. The daily rest period can also be cut to a minimum of nine hours no more than three times between weekly rests. The weekly rest can also be reduced to at least 24 hours. All these drivers hours regulations, variations and exceptions make keeping accurate records of your drivers' activity absolutely vital - particularly since failing to do this could expose you to corporate manslaughter charges.

Tracking System

Improve safety and save money through focused driver training and analysis Leveraging the power of your Home Run tracking system, the driver and unit analysis module has been designed to help you quickly and easily monitor important aspects of your drivers� behaviour and the performance of your vehicles. Important information about idling, speeding, harsh acceleration deceleration, engine revolutions, accelerator pedal position and fuel economy are recorded and collated for each driver and unit for later analysis. Configurable scoring matrices allow you to rank your drivers and vehicles in order to easily identify under- performing units and drivers that need training. The matrices allow for simple statistic-based scoring across multiple bands for each metric that is monitored. Baseline distributions can be used to help configure the initial matrices so that you can be sure scoring is relevant and accurate. The multi-window web based solution allows you to analyse results for multiple time periods and for multiple vehicles or drivers so you can see today, this week, this month or this year and compare it to any other time frame to test if improvement methods are having the desired effect.
